Voletta. Box Spring. October 17th , 2017.
Get a mattress cover that has an elastic bottom that will fit under the encased mattress while covering the top and around the sides of the mattress encasing. Comfortable mattress covers are available in regular and waterproof styles. The mattress encasing will protect the mattress from leaching dust, dust mite and pet dander allergen. The mattress cover will protect the mattress encasing from becoming contaminated with fresh dust, dust mite and pet dander allergen. Waterproof mattress covers will also protect your mattress encasing from urine and liquid spills. The mattress cover will put a comfortable barrier between your encased mattress and sheets while extending the time and need to clean the mattress encasing that is being protected under the mattress cover.
Todays newer materials are smooth, not crunchy and are far more durable and comfortable to sleep on. We recommend that you purchase NON-Membrane mattress encasings that are cool to sleep on and can be safely dried in a cool to warm temperature clothes dryer. REMEMBER it is the hot water in your washing machine that kills the dust mites and flushes away the dust mite and pet dander allergen. NOTE: There is no need to dry your encasings in a hot dryer and your encasings will last longer when dried in a cool to warm dryer! Waterproofing your mattress encasing If you need to totally waterproof your mattress encasing the answer is very easy and inexpensive! Instead of purchasing a more expensive water proof mattress encasings or waterproof mattress cover that will have to be washed anyway if the person has an accident, just cover your mattress encasing with a sturdy but thin sheet of inexpensive waterproof material such as plastic, vinyl or nylon that can easily be wiped off or replaced if an accident occurs.
Realistically, from all of the research I have done on this (and with a girlfriend that constantly debates this point with me, Ive done my share of research), I have concluded that box springs only do two things well, and that is 1. increase the overall height of the bed, and 2. soften the overall firmness of the bed (given that the box spring is not extremely firm). Helping the mattress last longer is a distant, distant, and arguable third. As a person who neither cares for a tall bed, nor a soft bed, I found that platform beds are the most stylishly modern, environmentally-friendly pieces of furniture to complement my mattress. You simply dont need a box spring for your mattress/bed.
Platform beds are increasingly popular today. The way they are made does not necessitate having a box spring. Mattress stores suggest that a box spring is much stronger than the wood frames of the past. This may or may not mean that your platform bed has inadequate support. That is really up to you. It is important that you do everything you can to help your bedding last. It is also important to do all you can to stay comfortable as you sleep. It may be that purchasing a new box spring every time you purchase mattresses will save you in the end because it may extend the life of your bed.
Some moving suppliers will have boxes specially designed for standard bed sizes. This can be a big help for keeping the mattress stable during transport. Padding around the box spring is also recommended to keep the harder lower corners from putting little dents in the wall. There can never be enough padding on furniture while it moves in and out of the home. There most damage done to the wall and floors occur because large heavy objects are dropped or swung around too fast. Caution and a good blanket for cushion can prevent a lot of heart ache later.
